    An excellent, meaningful addition to Left 4 Dead 2, and worth the 560 Microsoft Point asking price.
  2. The downfall is that you can only play the same level so many times before the excitement begins to wane. But regardless, it’s definitely worth the asking price. You’d be foolish not to pick it up.
  3. Mutation mode is tons of fun for the Infected as it allows you to truly feel dominating, but the real adrenaline rush is for the Survivors, who have to communicate and have fast reflexes in order to survive.
  4. The Passing adds good quality, three maps campaign and a couple of new competitive modes that worth the price on the 360 console and are a gift on the PC. Good work Vale, good work.
  5. I'd suggest that if you managed to make it through the entire game the first time around, then you owe it to yourself to purchase The Passing. Sure, it's short, but the mutation mode is set to add a heap of gameplay over the coming months, so get on board sooner rather than later.
  6. Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing is a bit better than Crash Course DLC for Left 4 Dead, but only barely. Three levels is still too few for a campaign and the potential drama from the original survivors isn't used up to its potential. Also the campaign is filled with the least desirable ideas from Left 4 Dead, like annoying perma-panic in shallow water and yet another scavenge-type ending. Maybe next time we'll finally get something decent, Valve? [June 2010]
  7. It's just a shame that this unique combination of still-alivers didn't result in something truly innovative.

    I absolutely loved the passing. It's th first time that there are more survivors alive than just your group. I loved the witty references adn the m60 is my new favourite gun. The golf club is a valuable addition to the vast group of melee weapons. I also love the patches that have been introduced along with the game. The infected bots for versus are great. The fallen survior is a cool new uncommon common. I loved it and the best thing about it is that it is free!!! Expand

    It should of just been DLC. Nothing's changed, theres some new mechanic's but other than that, it's basically the same, artsy Co-op FPS. The reason why L4D is good is because it's one of the few games where the Co-op is "Good". Your team is actually needed rather than some 10 year old following you stealing all the First-Aid-Kit's and RPG Ammo. Expand
